The major purpose of this study was to explore junior high English teachers' curriculum consciousness at the beginning stage of the grades 1-9 curriculum reform in Taiwan. J unior high English teachers in the great Taipei area were surveyed, using a researcher-designed questionnaire of curriculum consciousness. The final samples consist of 328 valid cases. 1n addition to descriptive statistics, t-test and one-way ANOVA were conducted to examine the effects of teachers' background variables on curriculum consciousness. Data derived from in-depth interviews with 19 teachers as well as relevant Iiterature were drawn upon in discussion of the survey resuIts. This study revealed three important findings. First, the basic tenets of the new English curriculum were acknowledged by most of the English teachers. Second, teachers' responses indicated a noteworthy gap between the ideal curriculum and teaching practices. Third, some backgroundvariables had a significant effect on parts of the teachers' curriculum consciousness, including teachers' educational background, school location, and whether the school had been designated to experiment with the new curriculum before the official launching. The findings of this study suggest that the authorities concemed should (1) promote faithful implementation of the new English curriculum at school and c1assroom levels; (2) respond to English teachers' need for teaching practices; (3) address the discrepancy between rural area and city; and (4) encourage action research among English teachers in face of the chalIenges of carrying out the new English curriculum.
